“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

Presidential Debt Commission Recommends Military Pay Freeze As Most Gov’t Employees Enjoy Raises

As the number of federal workers earning $150,000 or more a year has soared tenfold in the past fiveyears and doubled since President Obama took office, how can this debt commission even waste the paper to write such a thing? As more and more Military need to depend on food stamps….Yes Food Stamps…..Military.com says these jokers want to Freeze their pay and housing allowances for 3 years as their Boss Obama causes inflation….sounds like a great deal in Liberal Land.
They also recommended cuts to Social Security and Medicare, reduce income-tax rates and eliminate tax breaks including the mortgage-interest deduction and raise the gas tax…..This is called “fear mongering” by Liberals when a Conservative says it.

A presidential commission on reducing the deficit has recommended freezing basic military pay and housing allowances for three years starting in 2011, according to a draft report of the commission’s recommendations posted online Wednesday.
“A three-year freeze at 2011 levels for these compensation categories would save the federal government $7.6 billion in compensation and tax expenditures, as well as another $1.6 billion in less retirement accrual, or $9.2 billion total discretionary savings in 2015,” it said.

The move would not affect combat pay, the report said.
A White House spokesman could not be reached for comment.
The recommendation is likely to get a cool reception in Congress.

“I’m not sure there will be much of an appetite to freeze military pay while our troops are fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,” said Josh Holly, a spokesman for Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee, in an e-mail
As it now stands, the House of Representatives has passed a defense spending bill that would give troops a 1.9 percent pay raise next year. The Senate is calling for a 1.4 percent pay raise, but it has not yet voted on the matter. Congress needs to come to an agreement on defense spending by the end of the year or pay will remain flat in January.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates has looked for other ways to trim defense spending, such as closing Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Va., but that proposal has been roundly criticized by Virginia lawmakers, including Democratic U.S. Sen. Jim Webb
